    I get this, but also see the cultural blip here. Burqas aren’t all identical. And I doubt any significant number of Arab men would make this mistake. But still, giggle.

    Sorry, Should’ve said Muslim/Islamic men. Not all Arabs are Muslim. (Note: I’ve got my egyptian cousin (in-law) looking over my shoulder today :) )

    Yes, you’re right that burqas aren’t all identical, but the fact that women are hidden behind them makes them all appear identical in their hiddenness. Especially, if they’re wearing black burqas, as is the case here.

    I note that they’re all identical insofar that none of them – not even the men – are showing any legs. Even the shopping trolley is legless. :-)

    I somehow don’t think a Muslim man would be seen in public clutching the arm of a woman in a burqa?
